Covid Vaccinations

We would like to reassure you that Highcliffe Medical Centre and all the other practices in Christchurch are fully committed to the Covid vaccination programme, which is on-going in our community.









How is it happening?

Vaccine has been procured via Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and medical, nursing and reception staff have been working extra days to provide the vaccination programme.

Many of our staff have volunteered to work on their days off and their commitment to this cause has been outstanding.

When we are certain of vaccine deliveries, we are calling patients in the risk groups to book appointments.

As you can imagine, we have had no difficulty filling all our appointments and no vaccine has been wasted
